Brazen thefts on rise in City

SOME-BUNNY SPECIAL

Residents are unimpressed with police response

TYLER ORTON Times Reporter

MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

Residents of Rainbow Lodge aren’t the only ones upset with the amount of crime taking place in Langley City. “Langley City is the place not to be,” says Lois Munday, who sits on the strata council at Monterey Grande at 202 Street and 54A Avenue. Munday, along with several other residents of her building, are taking up a petition and will present it to City council after one too many break-ins in her building and an increase in crime in her area. Her frustration is shared by Pyramid apartment manager Ron MacIsaac, who has watched crime spike over the spring break at his building at 203 Street and 54 Avenue. Both are pointing fingers at the police, who they feel aren’t doing enough. “We as taxpayers are entitled to protection,” said Munday. “All of us are just livid.” On March 28, roommates living in a ground floor unit were getting ready for work at 7 a.m. when they heard a front window smash. A thief reached inside, grabbed a laptop from desk and took off. One of the residents went after him in a panic. When she saw no one, she put her key in the common area door and it became stuck. She had to leave it there, and later it was missing.

Task force to reassess council pay hikes

Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times

Griffin Iwasaki was thrilled to meet the Easter Bunny at Willowbrook Shopping Centre last weekend.

Langley Township council is reaching out to the community to evaluate how municipal politicians receive pay hikes. Council voted Monday in favour of establishing a five-person task force — preferably composed of Township residents — to look at how other comparable municipalities in B.C. and the rest of the country distribute salary raises to elected officials. The move comes after automatic pay bumps were given to the mayor Councillor Kim Richter and councillors in December 2011. Wages for councillors went up 19 per cent last year, increasing by nearly $7,000 from $36,043 to $42,936. Mayor Jack Froese saw his annual salary go from $93,724 to $105,456 — a 12.6 per cent jump. The original recommendation called for the task force to look at remuneration practices at comparable B.C. municipalities. But Councillor Bob Long and Councillor Kim Richter both said they favoured broadening the scope to look at the rest of Canada. “I think part of the reason we’ve gotten into the difficulties that we’ve gotten into recently is because we’ve been looking just at B.C.,” Richter told council. “The B.C. system seems to be self-perpetuating.”

Bug lands on bridge pier MONISHA MARTINS Black Press

A Volkswagen Beetle found its way onto a pier of the Golden Ears Bridge on April Fool’s Day. The red shell of a VW Bug mysteriously appeared on a concrete piling at the north end of the span Sunday morning, and had TransLink puzzled as to just how it landed there. “It’s in a really tough spot, it’s quite impressive that they got it there but it also makes it quite a challenge to remove,” said TransLink spokesperson Derek Zabel. Zabel doesn’t know who is responsible for the prank, but pointed a finger at the University of British Columbia’s Engineering Undergraduate Society, known for practical jokes, which have included hanging the frames of Volkswagen Beetles off bridges. “You always hear rumours that it’s UBC engineering students who do it every year,” said Zabel. TransLink was to remove the VW shell from the pier on Monday and cautioned others against copy-cat stunts. “It’s all fun and games but when you have to remove something like this, you are going to put the safety of others at risk,” Zabel added. “It is in a pretty precarious

The shell of a red VW Beetle was placed on a pier of the Golden Ears Bridge on April Fool’s Day. situation.” UBC’s Engineering Undergraduate Society was unaware of the April Fool’s prank and none of its member have claimed responsibility for it. “It certainly has the hallmarks of an engineering-style prank,” said Hans Seidemann, vicepresident of communications

for the society. The VW Bug was painted red — the colour of the UBC engineer jacket. Unless, the words UBC or the letter E (for engineer) was spraypainted on the car, Seidemann can’t be certain someone from UBC was involved. “The point to the pranks is to show of the ingenuity

of engineering students,” said Seidemann, a third-year engineering student who has yet to participate in any headline-grabbing hijinks. “It is usually to do something spectacular that makes people think how did they do that? And a little bit of boast to say ‘here’s what we can do with our technical savvy’.”

Simonds Elementary prides itself on being “the small school with a big heart.” But parents, students and staff are feeling pretty heartbroken right now, after thieves stole the school’s earthquake supplies. Meghan Fryer, PAC president of Simonds Elementary, said on Monday,April 2, someone broke the lock on a box that held the students’ earthquake supplies. “After years of discussion as to where to keep our earthquake supplies safe and away from the school, we finally had a box donated to keep the supplies outside,” said Fryer. “We used our Parent Advisory Council budget to fill it for the school so the parents would not have to.” The contents range from water bottles and granola bars, to shovels, axes, tarps and first aid supplies, which would sustain the school community of 160 after an earthquake. “All we would like is for the people responsible for this theft to know that we are a community school and they have stolen from our children items that could potentially save lives and bring comfort in a disaster situation.” Unfortunately, there is no way the PAC can replace everything they have had donated and purchased over the years. “We are a small school with a small budget,” she said.

Construction begins on corridor combo project BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter

Work has officially begun on the Roberts Bank rail corridor’s combo project in Surrey, which involves three overpasses. One of them is on the border from Langley City. Details were announced in 2010.The combo project will see three separate railway overpasses constructed on 192 Street, 54 Avenue and 196 Street, and will include the opening of what was

formerly a right of way into a twolane connecting road along 196 Street, south of 56 Avenue. It is all part of a much larger project, which extends from the Roberts Bank seaport to Langley Township, and encompass several overpasses, including one at Mufford Crescent and another at 232 Street north of Highway 1.They will help accommodate the higher volumes of rail traffic that are expected to accompany the port’s expansion, and ease road-rail

conflicts. Currently about 18 trains a day are using the corridor, which connects the Roberts Bank port to the Canadian rail network.That number could eventually climb to 38 trains a day, with many of them as long as 12,000 feet. In Langley City, clearing got underway last month along 56 Avenue and 196 Street. Wall construction is expected to begin in early May, followed by pile installation, which will likely start

in July and continue until January, 2013, taking about one month per bridge. The $121 million combo project is expected to be finished by the end of 2013 and must be complete by March 31, 2014 to qualify for federal funding. The federal government is paying $42.5 million towards the trio of overpasses, with another $25.5 million each coming from the province and Port Metro Vancouver. The remainder comes from the two

However, all City funds going toward the project will come from casino revenue and development cost charge funds, not from property taxes. Meanwhile, work is already underway on the Mufford project. An older home on Mufford Crescent has been removed, and the route through a farm north of Mufford Crescent has been staked out.

Findings expected within six months from PAGE 1

The Township of Langley bases council’s pay increases on the 60th percentile of direct pay rates for mayors and councillors in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Delta, Maple Ridge and Port Coquitlam. Automatic pay rates are distributed every three years at the start of each term. The task force is expected to be assembled later this spring, when council will appoint its members. Preference will be given to qualified individuals with experience in either business, human resources, financial or post-secondary fields. The task force will spend an estimated three to six months researching other Canadian municipalities’ pay increase practices. Its recommendation is expected by Dec. 31, however, Froese said it’s possible the deadline will be extended if more time is needed. Council plans to initiate a new system for automatic pay increases by January, 2014, before the next municipal elections come in the fall of that year.

City, police ‘not shrugging off’ problem

from PAGE 1

That night around 2 a.m., someone broke into all the lockers on the second and third floors. Munday said police were called immediately about the first brazen theft but they didn’t come. “Police should have sent a police dog right away,” she said. Another building had its front window smashed in. Mailboxes are being broken into and spring break saw an increase in graffiti around town. “Our back alley is used for drug deals and a bedroom. Our stairwell is used for a drug meeting place,” said Munday. During spring break, two 14-year-olds were caught stealing a vehicle from the Pyramid buildings, said MacIsaac. He caught some teens trying to break into the parkade and when he called 911, police didn’t come and he didn’t hear back from them until four hours later. MacIsaac said he has worked hard to clean up his complex, but across the street Brighton apartments is having some issues. Last Thursday, his entire neighbourhood was blocked off while police dealt with an armed shoplifter who ran from the Army and Navy store into a unit at Brighton apartments at 204 Street and 54 Avenue. That 22-year-old surrendered after three hours of negotiations. He has since been

charged with having a gun, pointing it at a loss prevention officer and other criminal offenses. Several weeks ago, residents of Rainbow Lodge organized a meeting with Langley RCMP to ask what could be done about the number of break-ins to vehicles and suspicious people hanging around in their buildings. Some expressed their frustration with police for not coming to process break-ins. At the meeting, Langley RCMP City Community Policing Sgt. Alex Bodden said police did drop the ball on that file and apologized for it. He asked that residents report every instance of crime so police can better decide to step up enforcement in the area. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender doesn’t believe crime is going up in the City. The crime rate is down overall, he said. But he’s been made well aware of residents’ dissatisfaction. He’s had several meetings and calls from apartment managers and residents upset with being victims of crime. “I know there are several people saying they aren’t getting timely service from the police, but I think that’s a bit of an overstatement. Having said that, we aren’t shrugging this off,” said Fassbender. He has had a meeting with one apartment property man-

ager already, who was very upset with police’s lack of reaction. “I was immediately on the phone to Langley RCMP Supt. Derek Cooke who jumped on the issue,” said Fassbender. In the case where police didn’t respond to a man’s truck being stolen in front of him, it was because they were busy arresting the two men who took it, he said. “The RCMP are trying to do the best they can. If a B&E took place but the suspect is long gone, there is no point in police rushing down there. But to the person who feels violated, that’s not good enough,” he said. “But no matter how many police we have, they can’t be everywhere.” But Fassbender doesn’t want to make excuses for the RCMP. “If people really aren’t satisfied with how police handled a crime, they need to go right to senior management and call Supt. Cooke,” said Fassbender. “Tell him, this is how you felt. Unless they know, they can’t respond.” He also welcomes ideas on how to reduce petty crime. “If people have any better ideas at the moment, I’d love to hear them,” he said. Senior Langley RCMP officers who work in the City weren’t able to respond to The Times before deadline, because they were off duty.

MEN’S DOUBLE FRONT

With the exception of Councillor Grant Ward, no one on Langley Township council seems to be happy about the state of affairs at TransLink. In a lengthy debate on TransLink and taxation at Monday night’s meeting, only Ward offered any support for the beleagured transportation agency. The debate was prompted by the latest two-cent gas tax increase, which went into effect on Sunday, and a suggestion by the Mayors’ Council that the province authorize TransLink to start collecting a vehicle tax. While Councillor Kim Richter said she doesn’t want to see TransLink get any additional money from Langley residents “until they can prove that they’re worth what Township residents are paying,” Ward disagreed. “TransLink is supposed to seek solutions and find money,” he said. “Seventy-four per cent of the revenue from the additional gas tax is coming back south of the Fraser. How can you say we

are not getting our fair share? To say we will stop paying any (extra) taxes is like cutting off your nose to spite your face.” Councillor Steve Ferguson raised the spectre that there may be no buses running from the new park and ride lot in Willoughby when it opens in conjunction with the freeway improvements. Councillor Charlie Fox noted that “the governance of TransLink is broken,” and council needs to hear from both TransLink and the Mayors’ Council about new tax proposals and proposed service improvements. Richter said she wants to know specifically how much is paid by Langley residents and what is spent by TransLink in providing service to Langley. Fox said the gas tax “Is grossly unfair,” as it forces people who have no options to pay more for gas, so that transit service is provided to other parts of the region. Mayor Jack Froese said the Mayors’ Council, made several suggestions on new tax sources because it has to come up with another $30 million to help fund

the Evergreen rapid transit line in Coquitlam, despite the twocent gas tax increase. If there are no solutions, “the fallback is the property tax,” he said. He said that without the additional tax revenue, there would be no buses running across the Fraser on the new Port Mann Bridge. “I agree we don’t get enough (service),” he said. “We are stuck with a system that is not sustainable.” Froese said that a property tax increase “is even more unfair than a vehicle levy.” Ferguson said that none of the issues surrounding TransLink will be sorted out until after the next provincial election. He also said that TransLink’s inability to enforce payment of tickets issued for not paying fares has caused members of the public to lose what little bit of confidence they had in the agency. Council agreed to invite TransLink and a representative of the Mayors’ Council to speak to it on how much the agency takes from Langley, what services it provides, its future plans and issues surrounding new taxes.

Making a difference

Mulcair, be yourself

A

study presented to Langley Township council on Monday confirms what many people instinctively know — Langley is a community of active volunteers, and one that makes a substantial difference in the lives of others, both locally and around the world. There are more than 900 non-profit groups operating out of Langley, with about 44,000 volunteers.That is an amazing number. More than one-third of the population of the two Langleys is involved in volunteering. One of the more interesting aspects of this volunteerism is that a large number of the operating non-profits are totally volunteer-run. As such, they are what presenters Dave Stark and Douglas Dunn call “the foundation of the iceberg.” They aren’t as visible as the larger organizations that often have paid staff. However, the work they do is equally vital. They may not be able to raise $100,000 for a specific project, but through volunteer work they can make someone’s life better. It might be organizing the planting of trees to commemorate Canada’s fallen soldiers in Afghanistan, as two Langley teens have done. It might be raising money for a community theatre, as Langley’s Rotary club members are doing. Or it could be simply giving someone a ride to and from the cancer clinic. All this volunteer work has a big impact on society, in both economic and non-economic ways. Dunn told council that the actual economic value of the non-profit sector is almost eight per cent of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product, and it is quite likely higher than that in Langley. For an economic sector that large, non-profits get very little attention from governments or many other sectors of society. In fact, governments have steadily been cutting back on grants and other assistance to charities. From a non-economic perspective, the work of non-profits and volunteers does a tremendous amount to make Langley (and Canada) better places. People are helped to live better lives, and in many cases they are encouraged to live their lives to a much fuller potential than they had dreamed was possible. Abbotsford is known as “Canada’s most generous city,”as it has had the largest charitable donations, per capita, across the country for nine years. Langley may one day be known as “Canada’s volunteer capital,” because people here love to give their time.

fter Jack Layton died, everyone knew that whoever replaced him as NDP leader would have giant shoes to fill. Layton’s talent for uniting the party and reaching out to people across the country made him a sort of folk legend, even before cancer stole him at age 61. Newly-selected NDP leader Thomas Mulcair, the 57-year-old Quebecker who helped Layton transform the party from a virtual non-entity in that province to a substantial force, taking 58 of 75 seats in last year’s election, is clearly a leader of some repute. What is also clear is he doesn’t have the charisma Layton had, and developed, as the orange crush flattened the Liberal red machine to become the official Opposition to Stephen Harper’s Conservative majority in May 2011. Mulcair has been a virtual unknown on the West Coast — unlike Layton — for all except diehard politics watchers. But does a leader known for being prickly have to be the second coming of Layton to win the hearts and minds of people west of Thunder Bay? Harper has shown that a leader can come across to many as cold and calculating, yet still win a majority in parliament. Let’s remember that even under Layton, the NDP won just 15 of 77 seats in the west, including 12 in B.C. To win over non-NDP voters, it’ll take more than criss-crossing the country connecting with people, as Layton famously did — he visited the Island more often than might be expected for a Toronto MP. Mulcair will be put under the microscope about everything from his policies to his personality, by his supporters and critics alike, in the three years leading to the next election. In that time, he must prove he is his own person, a leader who stands on his own feet. And he must avoid handlers who would try to make him a kinder, gentler version of himself. —Nanaimo News Bulletin The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

April 9 is anniversary of Vimy Ridge Editor: April 9 marks the 95th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. After failed attempts by both British and French forces, a corps of brave and determined Canadian soldiers captured this strategic ridge in France, which was of great importance to the German defence. Despite the terrible price in casualties, this battle marked not only a significant Allied victory, but also the first time Canadians had fought as an independent force, and not as part of the British Army. Along with other achievements during the First World War, the Battle of Vimy Ridge helped establish Canada as a key player on the world stage, earning our country a separate signature on the Versailles Peace Treaty which ended the war. As a member of The War

Amps Operation Legacy, a group of committed young people who are dedicated to preserving Canada’s military heritage, I would like to highlight this significant anniversary of a battle considered by many to mark Canada’s birth as a nation. To commemorate the anniversary, members of Operation Legacy will be donating copies of the documentaries A Vimy Veteran Remembers and In Flanders Field s to their local libraries. These productions are part of The War Amps internationally awardwinning Military Heritage Series, which tells the lesser-known Canadian stories, and are available at a cost-recovery price by calling 1 800 250-3030 or visiting waramps.ca.

A tribute to uncle Stan Editor: In March, 2011 I found out about my great uncle Stanley, who died very young at Vimy Ridge. I wrote this poem about him and would like honour him and all the fallen soldiers who unselfishly gave their lives. My great uncle Stan is listed on the cenotaph at the Murrayville Cemetery and when I went to see it, I was overwhelmed with grief. This poem flowed from my heart.

A series of sculptures and granite monuments, including this one, at Ieper, in Belgium, pay tribute to the sacrifice of Canadian soldiers who died at Vimy Ridge 95 years ago this Easter Monday.

Wall farm development sets precedent Editor: The relatively smooth passing of third reading for the development proposals for the Wall and Trinity Western University (TWU) properties is troubling and, as Doug McFee suggests (Letters, The Times, Feb. 28), it reflects poorly on Township of Langley planning. Both proposals include the effective, if not official, removal of land from the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). The Wall farm subdivision would see 13.5 acres of the ALR transformed into a subdivision of 67 homes with an additional 18 coach The

He carried a rifle as he marched straight into harm He and his regiment, his comrades in arms. With the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles, BC Regiment He advanced for the loss of Canada to prevent. Until at aged 18 he met his enemy face to face As he fought and died in that dreadful place. He generously gave his life for all in this land For Canada, his siblings, and his heartbroken Mom and Dad. I imagine my uncle, prayed aloud to our Lord Give me courage and strength to continue onward. I believe You were present and held him close Holy One While he slipped into eternity for his work was done. My Great Uncle Stan at Thelis in France does lie The picture of his headstone moves me and I cry. But his soul dwells in heaven, not in the grave He lives forever because of his faith and life he gave. Alone I stand at the cenotaph, lovingly tracing your name With tears running down my face, I am not the same. Thank you, thank you for your sacrifice Great Uncle Stan I am grateful for your willingness to obey God’s plan. I solemnly promise I will never forget your fate And I know you will be waiting for me at heaven’s gate. Cathy Tyers Moleschi Langley

houses for affordable housing for TWU’s mysterious and imposing “university district.” The TWU proposal includes the development of 23.4 acres of the ALR in three properties across Glover Road from the current TWU campus (Trinity University ALR subdivision passes hurdle, The Times, Feb. 14). As noted by others, removing land from the ALR for private financial gain will set a precedent. If these developments proceed, it is only fair that every other farmer in Langley with a sizeable chunk of land in the ALR be given the

opportunity to develop a residential subdivision or some nebulous private commercial venture of the same size. Although farmers may initially, rightfully and commendably, reject such temptations, we can assume that at some point they will relent or new owners will gleefully accept. At that point there will be no shortage of suits and legal professionals to assist them. The ALR will have failed and the landscape and ecology will be permanently degraded. Phil Henderson, Fort Langley

Worker went above and beyond duties Editor: I just wanted to express my gratitude and say thank you to a gentleman, Rod Kuhn, who went above and beyond his workday duties. My son Mark Dreger died three years ago in a car accident, when his vehicle hit a telephone pole. We go to the pole on a regular basis, as it is our memorial spot. Mark has lots of friends who drop by the pole, leave messages there and remember his smiling face. Mr. Kuhn was asked to clean the memorial stuff off the pole, but before he did this, he took the time to find Mark’s family and let us know that the pole was being cleaned. Thank you, Rod. People like you make our world a better place to live. Trish Dreger, family and friends

There’s money for trails but none for Aldergrove Lake Editor: It makes me furious when I read of the equestrian trails being considered for Campbell Valley and

Aldergrove Lake. Aldergrove Lake was closed with little opposition. The reason given

was that there was no money in the budget to rebuild it and that was that. Now it seems that

almost a million dollars over two years is being considered for equestrian trails, which is surely an elitist sport.

Dennis Towsend (Letters, March 27) cites five per cent as the number of people who own horses, but

the number of people who would actually use these trails would be a great deal smaller. Those enjoying eques-

trian pursuits, with the money and clout that comes with it, should find private land to practice their sport. Aldergrove Lake was a place that was used by thousands of people. I can’t tell you how many wonderful days we and many, many others spent enjoying swimming, playing, building sand castles, having hot dogs and popsicles, and in the evening — picnics and barbecues. Any trails built at Aldergrove Lake should be available for walking, jogging, and bike riding. Money now suddenly available in the budget would be better spent rebuilding this great facility as it was — free to everyone. Heather Watt Langley

Harvey letter was ‘all ideas and no facts’ Editor: I am writing in regards to Mike Harvey’s letter (The Times, March 20) headlined “Forget amalgamating two Langleys — let’s join Surrey.” As far as the suggestion of Langley becoming part of Surrey, where are the facts? This letter is simply full of ideas and thoughts and has no facts to back it up. It begs the question of whether or not any of his supporting points are true. He simply holds Surrey on a pedestal, and doesn’t back up any of his points with real information. All he does is ramble on about why Surrey is better than Langley, with no proof that it actually is.

Guinness attempt to raise funds for Pos-Abilities Society MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter

There have been many Guinness World Record breaking attempts in Langley, but none quite like this. Danny Halmo of Category 5 Productions is attempting to beat several Guinness World Records at once, using electric bikes to raise money for the Langley Pos-Abilites Society. This July he is hosting the Langley TwoFour electric vehicle world record challenge — a 24 hour electric vehicle relay and parade held in the Langley Events Centre parking lot. In the event, teams of six will collect pledges and take turns doing laps on a

electric bike for 24 hours, with vehicles provided by Shoppers Home Care in Burnaby. The first record Halmo intends to set is the “Relay of Pos-Abilites” 24 hour distance record on an electric wheelchair, for which there is no current record held. He also hopes to “smash” the world record for most vehicles in an electric vehicle parade, which currently sits at 216, and break the record for the oldest rider in an electric vehicle parade. All donations raised will go to the Langley Pos-Abilities Society, a non-profit group that provides new and reconditioned electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters for those who cannot afford them. “The purpose is to raise awareness and

money on a per lap pledge basis for people of the four main disabilities — physical, mental, legal and financial,” said Halmo, who has bipolar disorder and is on disability pension himself. “This parade is intended to enable the disabled and provide an opportunity for them to help themselves by getting their own pledges for the record and allow them to all participate with their personal mobility vehicles.” The event will also serve as a kick-off for another world record attempt by Halmo to ride an electric bike 6,800 km across Canada to Halifax in only seven weeks, beginning immediately after the Langley Two-Four event.

This, too, will raise money for the PosAbilities Society. This Canada-wide venture is similar to another endeavor Halmo took on last summer when he rode across the country on an e-bike to raise donations for food banks across the country (see “B.C. or Bust,” http:// www.langleytimes.com/news/132961853. html). The Langley Two-Four runs from noon on July 13 until 3 p.m. on July 14. Halmo also encourages participants to come dressed in costumes to liven up the event. There is currently room for 20 teams of six to participate. For more information contact Halmo at category5pros@yahoo.com.

More than 900 community groups in Langley are making the community a better place, and the vast majority of them are doing so “under the iceberg.” That information was given to Langley Township council on Monday night by Dave Stark and Douglas Dunn, who have done a detailed study of the extent of non-profit involvement in the Langley community and economy. They told council that close to 44,000 people volunteer in Langley, and contribute 7.3 million hours in volunteer time each year. About 6,000 serve as volunteer board members. Stark said that the study provides detail to back the widespread perception that “Langley is a very giving community.” “The information was eyeopening,” he said. Dunn said that non-profits account for 7.8 per cent of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and this figure shows the importance to the economy of non-profit activity. To put it in perspective, Dunn said the non-profit sector is 11 times larger than the motor vehicle business and

Suspect in shoplifting case remains behind bars MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

A man suspected of being an armed shoplifter, who shut down a portion of Langley City for hours on Thursday (March 29), remains behind bars after having his first court appearance on a number of criminal charges. Jesse Moore, a 22-year-old from Langley, has been charged with theft under $5,000, assault with a weapon, carrying a concealed weapon and possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Moore remains in custody pending his next court appearance on April 11. On March 29, in the late afternoon, Langley RCMP were called to the Army and Navy after a suspected shoplifter pointed a firearm at the store’s loss preven-

tion officers when they tried to apprehend him. The LPOs told police they had observed the suspect shoplift a propane torch from the store. As they attempted to apprehend him, the suspect produced what appeared to be a firearm. Once the staff saw the gun, they stopped and the suspect ran off. The LPOs immediately contacted police, never losing sight of the suspect as he ran into the Brighton apartment building at 204 Street and 54 Avenue. Langley RCMP officers, Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team and Police Dog Services responded to the scene. The initial investigation led police to the suite the suspect was holed up in.

Several blocks of 54 Avenue were blocked off for hours. Many Brighton apartment residents and other neighbouring apartment residents weren’t allowed to leave or enter the buildings until he surrendered, around 7 p.m. Moore was just recently in court in Port Coquitlam to face charges of breaking and entering and assault with a weapon for incidents in Maple Ridge. He is also facing an assault with a weapon charge in Langley from a few years ago.

Furniture recycling fee pushed to

95*

Metro Vancouver wants the province to make furniture retailers add a recycling fee to the price of each mattress or couch they sell. Local cities say a fee at the point of purchase is needed to battle the illegal dumping of mattresses since the regional district banned them from landfills and started charging a $20 fee to recycle the ones that arrive at transfer stations for disposal. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan blames Metro staff for putting the ban and disposal fee in place in January of 2011 without giving enough thought to the

unintended consequences. He said residents who need to get rid of old mattresses dump them to avoid paying the $20 and cities end up paying their crews to clean up the mess. “The reality is they’re going to dump it in laneways and ravines and anywhere they can,” said Corrigan, who raised the issue at a meeting of Metro’s Zero Waste committee Wednesday. “You’ve just cost us a whole bunch of money,” he told Metro managers, adding Burnaby also has to pay a recycling fee for each recovered mattress city crews take to recyclers. “It’s not chump change.” It’s a similar story in Surrey, where city officials say illegal

dumping of mattresses skyrocketed from about 10 a week to more than 80 after Metro introduced the $20 fee. It became so cumbersome, Surrey now offers to pick up mattresses from homes as part of the city’s large item pick up program, for absolutely no cost to the homeowner. Residents can call 604-635-5478 to have large items picked up. “It costs us a lot more, as you would imagine, to pick up a mattress that’s all waterlogged at the bottom of a ditch than to have a truck go around and pick them up in a scheduled fashion,” said Vincent Lalonde, Surrey’s General Manager of Engineering.

Three local recyclers processed more than 100,000 old mattresses last year that were diverted to them after the new regulations kicked in. Metro solid waste department

manager Paul Henderson said the region has previously asked the provincial government to consider imposing a recycling fee on new mattresses and large furniture items such as couches. The charge would eliminate the need for a disposal fee and hopefully end most of the illegal

dumping. He said it would follow in line with B.C.’s other product stewardship programs that impose fees to ensure recycling of home electronics and old tires. Metro staff say they’ve been told the province is strongly considering a mattress disposal fee but had given no signal of when it might be implemented. The committee voted to have the Metro board endorse an advance recycling fee for mattresses and other large furniture items. Henderson described the mattress ban as a “learning opportunity” for regional district staff, who he said will carefully consider the lessons learned before implementing more planned disposal bans on organics and wood in the future. — files from Kevin Diakiw

Gas prices are going up this week as TransLink initiates tax hikes at the pumps. Prices in this region were also driven higher after a fire in February knocked a refinery out of service at Cherry Point in Washington State service. It’s expected to resume operations this month. Pump prices don’t have far to go to hit all-time record territory. Metro Vancouver drivers briefly paid $1.50 a litre in the summer of 2008 when crude oil prices spiked.

Metro Vancouver motorists are now paying an extra two cents per litre to TransLink every time they fill up. The TransLink tax increase from 15 to 17 cents a litre took effect April 1 and prices immediately ticked up. The hike will generate $40 million a year and is dedicated to covering TransLink’s $400-million capital contribution to the $1.4-billion Evergreen SkyTrain line to Port Moody and Coquitlam. According to the price-tracking website gasbuddy.com, Metro Vancouver prices were averaging $1.437 per litre by Monday, up more than a cent from Friday. But prices have moved much more due to other factors in recent weeks. Prices have climbed sharply since early February, when Metro Vancouver drivers were paying an average of $1.25 per litre, reaching a recent high of $1.44 on March 28 before easing late last week to about $1.425. Gasbuddy co-founder Dustin Coupal said the tax increase appears to cement Vancouver’s status as having the highest gas prices in Canada, slightly above some east coast cities. Coupal doesn’t expect any relief for motorists this spring. Many refineries are either undergoing maintenance shutdowns or switching from winter to summer gas blends, he said, so there’s less supply right now and more potential for prices to shoot higher yet due to market forces. On top of that, gas prices normally rise in spring as more drivers take to the road. “We’re heading into a high gas price season with high prices to start with,” Coupal said.“So it’s likely prices are going higher yet.”

Hungerford heading to UniverCity on Burnaby Mountain

Altitude showcases great views Hungerford Properties is hitting new heights with their latest development, Altitude. Located in UniverCity at Simon Fraser University on Burnaby Mountain, the two high-rise towers will give buyers 360-degree views of Burrard Inlet, Indian Arm, the North Shore mountains and downtown Vancouver. “This is the last best view location on Burnaby Mountain,” says Jason Dolker, director of sales, marketing and service for Hungerford. The location is a draw for buyers to its proximity to everything without being right in the middle of it. “It’s a retreat from the city yet still connected,” Dolker says. “You get the

best of both worlds ... Nobody has our views ... we’re 1,300 feet above sea level. Nothing can compare.” Buyers looking for a greener lifestyle will find their perfect home at Altitude, as it will be part of one of the most sustainable communities in the Lower Mainland. Surrounded by 1,400 acres of forest, the building is designed to be about 45 per cent more efficient than traditional buildings and includes a three-bin kitchen recycling centre and a hydronic hot water heating system, among other energy-efficient features. For more information, visit www. hungerfordproperties.com/altitude or call 604-456-8883.

efficient ... it’s very livable.” Udzenija says that livability is one of the most important things to Concord, and this shows in every home they build. With shared amenities such as an entertainment kitchen, formal dining room, karaoke room, an indoor driving range and an outdoor putting green, Concord has spared no expense on keeping their residents happy and healthy. The fitness facility is particularly impressive, with a stateof-the-art cardio gym that is outfitted with the latest in Italian Kinesis fitness

equipment. “Our amenities set us apart,” says Udzenija. “No other development at this particular time has such an expansive amenities set.” The Met is opening for previews this week, but there has already been a lot of interest in the market. “We’ve been very excited about this for a long time,” Udzenija says. The grand opening will take place April 21. Home start at $279,900. For more information, visit www.themetburnaby. com or call 604-899-8800.

‘It’s all about the location’

Concord Pacific continues to impress with The Met by Kerry Vital

With the opening of their newest high-rise development, The Met in Burnaby, Concord Pacific is once again proving why they are an integral part of the Metro Vancouver real estate business. “It’s all about the location,” says Concord Pacific’s Project Marketing Manager Peter Udzenija. “There are parks everywhere, we’re kitty-corner to Metrotown and just a block and a half from SkyTrain. It’s comfortably close.” The condominium suites are spacious and come in a variety of oneand two-bedroom floorplans. There are some three-bedroom suites available as well on the upper floors. With 8’8’’ ceilings and open balconies or terraces in most homes that are perfect for enjoying your beautiful view, you will never feel cramped in your new space. Wideplank engineered hardwood flooring throughout the main living areas and plush carpeting in the bedrooms is standard, and both lend a touch of elegance to the home. The kitchens are full of thoughtful little details, such as a waste recycling bin and sliding basket under the kitchen sink, soft-close hardware on all the cabinets and a modern white marble tile backsplash that is perfectly complemented by wood veneer cabinetry with open glass display shelving and under-cabinet

We have everything that people want,” says Concord Pacific Project Marketing Manager Peter Udzenija. “It’s very livable.”

lighting. Depending on your plan, your kitchen will be lit by pot or track lighting, and the engineered stone countertop is almost too beautiful to mar by preparing food on it. The Miele appliances are a chef ’s dream, while the polished chrome Grohe faucet is yet another beautiful detail. The luxury extends to the bathrooms, which include engineered quartz stone countertops, a custom medicine cabinet with a mirror, shelves and built-in lighting, and white marble tile flooring that matches the tub/shower surround. Homeowners are given the option to have their home automated with Control4 technology or include air conditioning in their suite. “We have everything that people want,” Udzenija says. “Because of the shape of the building our plans are very

Submitted photos

The expansive lobby of The Met, top, will include a lounge area for residents. Situated in the middle of parkland, above, it is easy for homeowners to feel a part of nature while still being close to every amenity they could possibly need, from the Metropolis at Metrotown shopping centre, left, to a convenient SkyTrain station.

Models needed for launch

MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter

Calling all curvy women. LUCY Clothing and Forever Yours Lingerie are searching for beautiful, confident plus size models for their new online stores launching this fall. Specializing in plus size clothing in hard to find sizes, LUCY Clothing needs real models that wear real sizes, says Sonya Perkins, owner of both LUCY Clothing and Forever Yours Lingerie. “Unfortunately with a lot of the vendors we deal with we don’t get photos.You buy from a line sheet or you buy from a show so you see a product in person but they don’t actually have pictures of it. And if they do, especially for this store, LUCY, they don’t have pictures of plus size models,” Perkins said. “How can you sell a plus item if it is on a size 2 girl? It just doesn’t translate. And the problem that we’ve had for the most part with the traditional modeling agencies is that the traditional plus size model right now is between a size 8 and 12.The clothes we carry start generally at a size 14, plus. It just wouldn’t work.” Perkins first opened the doors of Forever Yours Lingerie 16 years ago in a 600 square foot building on the one-way stretch of Fraser Highway. Frustrated with her personal quest for nice lingerie in larger sizes for her own wedding, Perkins became inspired to create a

hunt for models for both of her stores. Although entrants for LUCY Clothing must be a size 14 and up, those entering the contest for Forever Yours Lingerie can range from small to large sizes to reflect the diversity of products carried there. “We want to promote the every woman so that you look at a picture and you can see yourself wearing that,” Perkins said. “You’ve got a lot of products that don’t come with pictures or they come with pictures that are a very unattainable look. We just want to bring it down to earth and make it attainable for people who are looking for products where they can see themselves in it.” Models interested in entering the contest must be 18 years of age or over (there’s no cap on age), size 14 to 24 for LUCY Clothing or sizes ranging from petite to plus for Forever Yours Lingerie, must be able to travel to Langley once per week, be between 5-foot-6 and 6-foot-0 and be able to cover up any tattoos or piercings. Winners of the contest will receive a $500 LUCY Clothing or Forever Yours Lingerie wardrobe, a three month paid contract with possible renewal, participation in a national print and web campaign and a staff discount for the duration of the contract. “We’re looking for confidence, personality, beautiful curves and a beautiful face. Really just the every woman,” Perkins said. “We’re looking for women that

business to meet the needs of this niche market. “I couldn’t find anything that was something that a bride would want to wear under her dress or on her wedding night. It was all the granny gowns and the big full foundations and nothing really sexy and pretty. And I thought there’s got to be something out there that’s in those sizes that’s just not mainstream. So I started doing some research and jumped into it a year later,” Perkins explained. Still located on the one-way portion of Fraser Highway, today Perkins shop boasts 6,000 square feet and now carries all hard to find styles and sizes ranging from small to 4X and bras from a B cup to a K cup. In 2007 she expanded to a plus size clothing store, {LUCY} — Love. Uniquely. Curvy.You Clothing, located just up the street from Forever Yours Lingerie. “It’s something I love to do. It’s just that feeling of putting a woman into something and to see her feeling happy and feeling great about herself,” Perkins said. “A lot of women come in with an attitude that they’re not going to find anything, and then they find something that is fabulous, not something that they are just settling for because it is the closest things that fits. It’s amazing the difference in a person’s attitude when they get something that they love and that makes them feel good. I love that.” Perkins is currently on the

Stories I never told my Mom!

How to plan for retirement A number of Canadians aged 54 and under will be affected by changes to Old Age Security (OAS) announced in the Federal Budget. In 10 years the age for OAS eligibility will rise from 65 to 67. OAS benefits are currently paid to Canadians aged 65 and over; individuals can receive up to a maximum of nearly $6,500 per year based on meeting residency requirements. According to a report by Harris Decima commissioned by the BMO Retirement Institute, 32 per cent of Canadians aged 25-54 will rely on OAS, the Canadian Pension Plan (CPP) and the Quebec Pension Plan (QPP) as their primary source of retirement income. Tina Di Vito, Head of the BMO Retirement Institute, advises Canadians to adopt a long-term approach to saving for retirement and understand the right tax strategies to maximize old age security benefits. These strategies, despite the changes announced in the Federal Budget, enable income to be earned from the most advantageous sources. BMO offers the following tips on how Canadians can prepare for retirement:

• Understand what a retirement plan is: Having a retirement plan is more than making contributions to an RRSP or participating in a pension plan. A retirement plan is a document that can change from year to year, depending on your life circumstances. A complete plan consists of the savings phase (steps to get to your retirement) and the spending phase (steps to ensure your money will last you through your retirement). • Save more: Taking advantage of an RRSP and/ or TFSA, in addition to a pension plan, is a tax-free way to save more money for life in retirement. Establishing monthly savings goals will help get you on the right track, as will setting up automatic withdrawals from your paycheque into an RRSP. • Budget accordingly: When planning for retirement, making and following a budget is fundamental. Develop a personal budget to understand how much money you’re expecting will come in and what portion of this you intend to spend or save. It is important to review it regularly and make adjustments where necessary. • Pay off debt: Saving for

retirement is important, but so is paying off debt. Make it a priority to pay off your mortgage and high interest debt sooner. • Take advantage: Take full advantage of your workplace pension plan, including any employee matching programs offered, and auto features such as automatic enrolment and auto-escalation. • Choose investments that meet your needs: For investors who prefer to take a less active role in investing, target date products such as BMO LifeStage Class Funds allow investors to select the fund that best matches their retirement target date and watch their investments automatically evolve. Each Fund shifts its asset mix on an annual basis so that the percentage of equity investments in the fund decreases as it approaches its target end date. The Funds are intended to provide growth in the early stages and to become progressively more conservative over time. • Financial plan: Working with a financial professional to ensure that you have a plan that takes into consideration your short- and long-term goals — including a retirement component — is imperative.

Williams joins Thunder staff A familiar face has joined the coaching staff for the Langley Thunder. Ryan Williams is joining the senior A lacrosse team as an assistant coach for the 2012 Western Lacrosse Association season. The Thunder are the defending WLA champions. “Ryan has always been willing to help the Thunder in any way he can,” noted Rob Buchan, the team’s governor. “He has been extremely loyal to our team over the many lean years and has proven that he is committed to do whatever it takes to help us improve. “Ryan has a great lacrosse IQ and is very skilled with his assessment of player tendencies and we look forward to working with him much more in the future.” Williams, a goaltender, played for the organization from 2003 to 2007. He served as an assistant coach in 2008, assistant general manager in 2009 and as a scout for the past two years. As a player, Williams is remembered for his combative style and staunchly defending his teammates. His coaching experience includes helping Coquitlam’s junior A side win their first ever Minto Cup in 2010. He did so as an assistant to Rod Jensen, who is now the head coach of the Thunder. Williams has also coached box and field

lacrosse and in 2003 was bestowed the WLA Maitland Award for his

contributions to minor lacrosse. The Thunder begin

While the weather the past few weeks may be misleading, baseball season really is ready to go. The Langley Blaze kick off defence of their 2011 provincial championship banner with a home doubleheader against the North Shore Twins on Saturday (April 7) at McLeod Park to start the 2012 B.C. Premier (U18) Baseball League season. The games go at noon and 2:30 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are quite young this year, but we have some talent,â&#x20AC;? said coach Jamie Bodaly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not as strong or as deep as yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; past, but I think by the end of the year, we should be among the top three. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still think we have a good chance of winning it.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the

Blazeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual March trip to Arizona for spring training, the team was in midseason form over the weekend, taking top spot at the Best of the West showcase tournament in Kamloops. It was the third straight year Langley has won the tournament, The Blaze beat the Okotoks Dawgs 5-3 in the final. Mitchell Robinson was the final game most valuable player while Mason Cratty won the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MVP award. Newcomer MarcAndrew Habeck and Justin Geerts led the way on the mound while solid hitting from Bill Germaine, Preston Kokotailo and Cratty led the offence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We won, but there are still a lot of things we can work on,â&#x20AC;? Bodaly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The talent alone won it for them.â&#x20AC;?

ball season kicks off While the majority of the Blaze roster is younger, that does not mean they do not know how to win. Those returning with the Premier team were part of a team which went 25-23 — after having to forfeit a dozen wins because the use of ineligible players — but rebounded to capture the provincial banner. And the players who graduated from the Junior (U16) Blaze program were part of a team which was an impressive 41-7 to capture the regular season crown. They team lost in the provincial championship final. “It is good they have that experience, now we just have to teach them the (Premier) game a little bit,” Bodaly said. “They have the talent, but it is a different game going up a higher level; the game is a lot quicker.”

Easter skate

A public skate with the Easter Bunny, as well as some other family-friendly activities will be taking place on Saturday as the Langley Events Centre hosts Easter Skate 2012. The public skate with the Easter Bunny is from 9 a.m. to noon. There will also be three separate Easter egg hunts, both on and off the ice. The first goes from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. and is for kids five and under. The second is for kids ages six to nine and is from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. The final one is from 11:30 a.m. to noon and is for kids ages 10 to 12. There will also be other activities such as crafts, bouncy castles and more. Cost is $5 per person and $15 per family (four people with a minimum of one adult). The cost includes admission, skate and helmet rental, although there are a limited number of helmets.

The Blaze pitching staff will by led by a pair of right-handers, Habeck, an import from Winnipeg, and Geerts. Geerts pitched last season with Langley, going 3-4 with a 2.20 earned run average and 58 strikeouts in 35 innings. Other pitchers expected to be counted on include Mitchell Kennedy (14-1, 0.97 ERA, 61 strikeouts in 94 innings), Liam Stroud (10-0, 1.49 ERA, 99 strikeouts in 70

innings) and Aston Mantle (7-3, 1.19 ERA, 82 strikeouts in 58 innings). All three played for the Jr. Blaze in 2011. Offensively, Cratty and Germaine will be counted upon for their bats as will Tyler O’Neill. Germaine led the team with 27 RBIs and hit .321 while Cratty batted .329 and 15 RBIs. O’Neill, who is recovering from hernia surgery, but should be back soon, hit .348 with 37 RBIs

for the Jr. Blaze. The Jr. Blaze will also provide plenty more offence. Nick Rutckyj won the BCJPBL triple crown, leading the league with a .402 average, while bashing a pair of home runs and driving in 38 runs. Kokotailo (.383, 38 RBIs), Greg Rogers (.339, 10 RBIs), Michael Dagg (.328, 21 RBIs)and Mitchell Robinson (.398, 23 RBIs) will also be counted on to fuel the offence.

You & The Law

PRESENTS

BEWARE OF TRANSFERRING FUNDS INTO JOINT ACCOUNT Many seniors look to their adult children for help in managing their financial affairs. Some feel an easy way is to transfer their money into a joint bank account with an adult child so both can make deposits and withdrawals. Very often a lawyer isn’t even consulted. But this arrangement can give rise to significant heartache and legal problems. With a joint account, ownership of the account flows to the survivor when one account holder dies. This can lead to unfairness if a parent has several children but only one of them receives the proceeds of a joint bank account. The issue becomes whether the parent intended to give the money in the account to that adult child or intended that the funds be held in trust for the parent’s estate and shared equally amongst all the children? In the past, although decisions varied, courts typically approached the issue by presuming that if money was held in a joint account owned by parent and child, the parent intended to give that money to the child. This “presumption of advancement” has often been criticized as hopelessly out of date. In two recent Supreme Court of Canada decisions, the court ruled that the presumption no longer applies in the circumstances described above. Justice Rothstein reasoned: “It is common nowadays for ageing parents to transfer their assets into joint accounts with their adult children in order to have that child assist them in managing their financial affairs. There should therefore be a rebuttable presumption that the adult child is holding the property in trust for the ageing parent to facilitate the free and efficient management of that parent’s affairs.” The Court further ruled that even disabled adult children who remain financially dependent on their parents can’t benefit from the presumption of advancement. The court felt that

determining which adult is “dependent” enough to justify applying the presumption would create too much uncertainty. Money in a joint account can still go to the surviving account holder if there’s proof the parent intended to gift that money. In one of the Supreme Court of Canada cases, an ageing father had placed the bulk of his assets in joint accounts with his eldest daughter, Paula, to help her family financially. Unlike her financially secure siblings, Paula worked at various low-paying jobs and took care of her quadriplegic husband, Michael. In his will, Paula’s father left specific bequests to Paula, Michael and her children, and the balance of the estate was to be divided equally between Paula and Michael. After he died, Paula and Michael divorced. Michael claimed that Paula held the nearly $1 million in the joint accounts in trust for the benefit of her father’s estate, and consequently the assets should be distributed according to his will (i.e. split equally between Michael and Paula). But the Court decided otherwise, saying that there was plenty of evidence to show that the father actually intended to give his daughter the money in the bank accounts. Transferring a home or bank account into joint names with an adult child might seem like a convenient way for an ageing parent to handle their financial affairs. But unless a lawyer is consulted, and the arrangement and your intentions are properly documented, a bitter and expensive lawsuit can result. Your lawyer can also offer other estate planning suggestions so that your testamentary wishes are carried out in the most tax effective way possible.
